can any computer literate people confirm or deny that this is possible? the comment section seems to be in two minds
#56 to #15 - anon (05/14/2013) [-]
it is possible and very easy in fact just create your ftp server (the amount of storage would depend on the computer thats running the server) , download a ftp client and put it on a flash drive and you essentially doing the same thing
#67 to #15 - anon (05/14/2013) [-]
It is. Software engineer. And it would have been useful 10 years ago when we hadn't have dropbox and skydrive. Because then your files would have been syncronized.
But what he did is impractical due to that fact that he could just use dropbox or skydrive
#121 to #15 - anon (05/14/2013) [-]
Its possible, but totally stupid and unusable unless you have very fast internet.
#153 to #15 - fuckyouto ONLINE (05/15/2013) [-]
In practice yes, but no not to be able to FTP to a server.
You first need to know what OS will be used, mac, unix, windows and for each diff OS you have to write different scripts. Windows you need to open command then dos then connect that way, but you would not have drag and drop file swapping you would have to input the raw dog way. Windows no longer allows USP plug and play like a CD so you would have to hack the chipset of the USB to allow it to act as a DVD/CD. ALSO No matter what you do the password and username for your server would be on the USB at all times and cannot be locked in a text file that anyone can open so if you lose that and you do not change the pass quick enough and anyone gets into your server you are ****** .

aye, that does seem the general consensus, cheers
#168 to #15 - anon (05/18/2013) [-]
Computer science major. Anon because I've never had a use for an account. Now I can start; Indeed this is ******** . Scripts aren't anything that you can write in a TXT doc and just start up and connect. Also, you need a lot more than 1KB to transfer any data unless you want to be there forever; it's stupid to partition that just to make a point. Lastly, scripts are used inside HTML files, you could use a BAT or an EXE, but even at that, you're still very limited to what you can transfer: I.E. Most pure text documents, and VERY basic picture types (PNG JPG and BMP).

#39 to #15 - anon (05/14/2013) [-]
You can't partition a removable drive. So no this is not possible.
#43 to #39 - anon (05/14/2013) [-]
You can partition a removable drive, but windows will only be able to access the first partition.
#52 to #43 - likeabox (05/14/2013) [-]
The Anon above is right, you could make the first partition a FAT with 2kb and the other partition could be ext4 or ext5 (standard Linux file systems) or any other file system unreadable to windows. The fact that Windows 7 doesn't recognize Linux formats urks me because whenever I want to copy some files to the sd card that contains the debian based Raspbian Wheezy os for my Raspberry Pi, I can't, not without special software.
P.S Yes, it is entirely possible for a thirteen year old to do this, being thirteen myself I have done a similar project with an FTP server
#29 to #15 - rupok (05/14/2013) [-]
Its possible but extremely inconvenient, because it would require an internet connection so there is no point to the flashdrive, unless its a security tool to access his porn stash or something on that 2TB.
User avatar #111 to #15 - vedomajkatrololol (05/14/2013) [-]
did a 13 yr old do it? no. can it be done? yes. can this person do it? no. why? no one have 2tb of ftp for JUST storage like that. big ********
User avatar #167 to #111 - maggotarms (05/15/2013) [-]
cheers mate, someone finally explained it in terms i understand haha
User avatar #16 to #15 - marcothespud (05/14/2013) [-]
I would say it is possible, personally my router can accept nearly any USB to use as an FTP storage, I use this because I work at home and work and this way I don't always lose a USB stick.

Continuing with the point you could easily make an exe to open the FTP through a browser such as chrome, I think one of my friends did this when we did A level computing together.

It's possible; do I believe a 13-year old did this? Not really.

And FTP is just File-Transfer Protocol, so as long as the USB communicates to the dedicated server through that protocol's rules, I don't see why it wouldn't work. The problem is anyone can also write a script to do that same thing the USB device does, except on their computer, provided the server is unprotected.

TL;DR: Works, but wouldn't really recommend doing it.
User avatar #32 to #22 - maggotarms (05/14/2013) [-]
yeah, seems complicated for a 13 year old, cheers mate
#155 to #22 - fuckyouto ONLINE (05/15/2013) [-]
The only way is to write a script that OPENS a FTP file or installs one and input your own password and username to get into the server. The only other way is for windwos "DOS" and you do not have drag and drop everything is in console. same with mac and unix, its all command line. Either way your username and pass for the server is always on the USB so you have a security issue, not to mention
ITS A ******* 2 TB SERVER THAT A ******* DUMBASS USES FOR STORAGE!!! What kind of ******* moron would upload a 2 terabytes of data to a ******* server! EVEN 1 GIG IS TOO MUCH FOR MOST COMPANY'S BANDWITH!

I completely understand what you're saying, but it could be a richfag and they have their own dedicated server.
User avatar #34 to #22 - mourningwolf (05/14/2013) [-]
Unless he has a key file that the ftp server uses to authenticate access..but still, I'm not so sure he did this by himself..he could be a computer whiz, who knows.

beethoven was an accomplished pianist at 4 yrs old and wrote his first concerto by 6. Why would you doubt that a 13yr old couldn't set up an FTP?
#106 to #100 - anon (05/14/2013) [-]
Because Beethoven was a musical genius, and a piano has a logical simple structure (lighter tones to the right, and darker to the left). He played the ******* piano when he was deaf man.

Computing language isn't necessarily as logical, and it's much more advanced.

You type ftp:// *IP Address* into the address bar and then, if needed, enter the username and password. I think nearly every browser supports this, I know for certain chrome does.
#83 - curveball (05/14/2013) [-]
What's the point of putting this on a USB stick? If your internet went down you couldn't access the data. You may as well just store it online directly and cut out the middle man.
#99 to #83 - anon (05/14/2013) [-]
Except Google Drive only has 15 GB of storage (unless you pay for it), not 2 TB.

it's like having a key and a password lock. Getting a password is easy, but getting the key is harder. on unauthorized access.

Writes a script that connects to a 2 Terabyte server dedicated to storage...
User avatar #8 to #1 - sinonyx ONLINE (05/14/2013) [-]
put flash drive in computer
script runs
connects to server

it probably opens up IE or chrome, and puts into all the information for the server

Probably just a batch file
I've made something similar in 165 bytes

@echo off
echo user USER> ftpcmd.dat
echo PASSWORD>> ftpcmd.dat
echo put %1>> ftpcmd.dat
echo quit>> ftpcmd.dat
ftp -n -s:ftpcmd.dat You need to login to view this link
del ftpcmd.dat

1) It would be utterly slow as the FTP would run off the USB drive thus making it rely on internet connection + USB speed combined to read/write.

2) The only possible way of achieving this for Windows is using the "Connect to a FTP Server" drive setting which cannot be done via a flash drive. Not with a simple script anyways, it would take an elaborate program.

3) Anyone that has a 2tb FTP server isn't using it for misc files.
#45 to #14 - anon (05/14/2013) [-]
The FTP would not run from the USB it would only be opened/accessed. Most likely opening the computers default browser to a specific URL.
Most routers nowadays allow you to make an FTP server out of any USB drive you have laying around, and I know that Asus lets you access this FTP server from a URL you make.

User avatar #37 - mirrorsmirrors (05/14/2013) [-]
So, is this just because he can? Or is there any advantage to doing this rather than just opening up your FTP server on a browser?
User avatar #41 to #37 - demonicdude (05/14/2013) [-]
It probably contains the username and password so he doesn't have to remember it or use special software to connect to the server. And just cause he can.
#2 - anon (05/14/2013) [-]
That's pretty amazing, anyone have some sort of instructions on how to do this?
